The List

Well Tomorrow brings in a new year, and while I can hardly believe that this year is already done, I have to face the facts and come to terms with the fact that tomorrow will be the first day of 2007. So first of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Ok now that that is done, I thought I would use this blog to share with you all 100 things that I would like to do/achieve in the coming year. Some of them I have attepmted in the past and even blogged about (you can check out the links i have made), and some of them I haven't never done or at least haven't done for a long time anyway.

So if there is anything you would like to do with me, or could help me with, just let me know, that would be great. Hopefully as the year goes by I will be able to tick them off this not so little list and put a photo or at least a blog about it…

Wow, that's an impressive list. 365 days in a year and 100 things to do, that's about 2 a week. I was just wondering, where's the change my nickname to M? I've got another couple for you too, visit a farm and drink UHT milk once. I wish you all the best with achieving all 100. Maybe you could have a poll on how many things from your list people think you can achieve next year. Anyway, there are definitely a few things that I want to try and do next year too, like control the amount of chocolate I eat and exercise regularly. Do you reckon they have rainbow paddle pops at uni??? They're my favourite paddle pops. :)

Love Flic

Howdy doody emdog.

yes yes i know I have cottoned on (no advertisement intended) to your list a little late in the year..

but i love it!

and I want to help you with a couple of them.

number 1. exercise regularly.
Eaves and I did the 5km run to the G last year, and this year we r training for the 10km Melbourne Marathon in November. there's still time to get your running shoes on and join us, it's great to have a goal to aim for (to make u run)

number 20. I love indian food.
well.. i love butter chicken and apparently that has 65g of fat per serve, but i like naan too, and that's not as bad. lol.

number 55. (you are talking to the karaoke queen.. some of my prizes include a bundaberg rum tie with a beer coaster on the end of it to put your drink on.. and $20 from the warby pub - David whittle and I won hands down - for enthusiasm!)

and number 83. I worked at K-mart for 3 nights overnight a couple of weeks ago. i'll let u know (if and) when I get another shift there and u can come and visit me!! :)

so yeah, that's it. i wish u all the best my friend, and I LOVE reading your blog!! :)

love leish xoxo

P.S. i have blogged a little on my myspace, i dunno which ones u've read. most of them are about death.. so.. enjoy?
